Kamuzu Central Hospital suspends operations over water crisis

Kamuzu Central Hospital has suspended all theatre operations and others clinical works that require running water because of water crisis that affected the medical facility .kch

Nyasa Times understands that the water problem started on Sunday night due to a burst pipe.

But reports indicate that patients who were scheduled to be operated Monday have been rescheduled to other days.

Ministry of Health spokesperson, Henry Chimbali referred the matter to the Hospital Director Mrs Chinkhata who confirmed about the problem saying: “The problem is there and Lilongwe Water Board has been informed and they are working on it. “

She added: “A pipe busted and they have sent their personnel to fix the problem.”

The hospital’s medical staff who spoke to Nyasa Times said they could not conduct any operation because some materials they use were still unwashed due to lack of water.

Patients and guardians have been exposed to poor sanitation as there was bad smell in various departments at the hospital while the floor could not be mopped.

    A water pipe burst, NOT busted!!!! Please please please, get your work edited, guys.

    Also, ” some of the materials were still unwashed” What the fuck is that? I think you want to say ” some of the equipment was still unwashed,” For all I know, materials would mean, consumables like bandages, plasters, spirits, medicines etc. Come on now guys, if you can’t write in proper language then find another career.

    Landani ndalama za Cashgate mukonzere ma Pipe kiki! Why suffering while there is lots of Cashgate money in the Bank its a real joke

    Ndiye chonchi inu alomwe kumasangalalabe kuti Mathanyula ndi president. Our country is still sinking, in fact at a much faster pace than it did under all the previous regimes. That is the worst president in African history. A man who doesn’t know what to priotise, a wedding or national issues. A man who can spend carelessly hiring an unusable jet plane, spending nights in expensive hotels, all that at a time when government doesn’t have money to spend on basic national services.

    Chonde , water is life , try all you can to bring back water to the Referer Hospital .

    Does the president know about it ? Our president is not on a one year probation , he needs to be serious with the good ruling of the country . To be a president is a serious business , it is not a trier and error . Many lifes will be lost if the head of state is not serious about this urgent issues.

    This issue is different from the mortuary issue which DPP was decompaigning PP under JB while this time DPP is killing people because of negligency.
